St. Mark's Church, Zagreb

4.5
#2 of 10 in Historic Sites in Zagreb
Take in historic architecture and art at St. Mark's Church. Notice the roof tiles, which depict a white castle on a red background--the coats of arms of the city of Zagreb. Watch for the Romanesque window and Gothic doorway that remain from the original structure. At the southern portal, admire the Gothic sculptures, which represent the twelve apostles, Joseph and Mary with baby Jesus, and St. Mark with the lion. On the northwest wall of the church, you can see the oldest coat of arms of Zagreb from 1499. In the church interior, keep an eye out for two statues by Ivan Mestrovic, considered by many to be the most famous Croatian sculptor of the 20th century.

    Visited with my girlfriend, in the photo does not do that live. Really nice. Advice from there to reach the stairs of the witches and the hidden tunnel. And after the funicular just for the sake of immersing yourself in the past.

    It is a must-see. A different church that is worth to see and surely not remember you to any other.

    Must visit when in Zagreb. Unfortunately it was raining when we were there. What a good idea to have the arm of coat on the roof of the building.

    This is a very nice, well maintained church near the city hall. The roof is decorated with colourful tiles that represent the coat of arms of Croatia. It was closed when I was there.

    The church must have been built as early as the 13th century. Outside, on the northwest wall of the church lies the oldest coat of arms of Zagreb with the year 1499 engraved in it. On the roof, tiles are laid so that they represent the coat of arms of Zagreb. The most valuable part of St. Mark's Church is its south portal, considered to be the work of sculptors of the Parler family from Prague (end of the 14th century).

    This beautiful parish church was radically reconstructed in the second half of the 14th century. First thing to notice is the gorgeous roof and of course the original gothic sculptures at the southern portal. Great for taking photos or just enjoying the view. Unfortunately It was closed so I didn't see how's on the inside..but I sure will in the close future.

    It's really pretty outside. I didn't get the chance to see inside because it was closed. I don't really recommend touring on Mondays. Everything is kind of closed.

Where to stay in Zagreb

Lodging in Croatia's capital Zagreb maintains a high standard, with many centrally located hotels offering significant weekend discounts on their finest rooms. Hostels remain the most affordable option for budget-minded travelers visiting for a day or two, providing small but neat rooms only steps away from the city's most popular bars, clubs, and restaurants. For something a bit quieter, look for self-catering apartments and guesthouses in the city's residential neighborhoods, where you can park for free and get a good night's sleep.
